External Hard Drive & 722 model DVR problem

AngieM

I have a 722 DVR and have had an External Hard Drive connected to it for years now. 

 

Recently, to view anything recorded on the EHD, I have to UNPLUG the DVR and let it power up and load the OS before it can "see" the connection to the EHD via the USB port. 

 

Then I can watch one recorded event and.... all of a sudden it can't see the connected port anymore. 

 

Until I UNPLUG the DVR and cycle it up again. 

 

Anyone else have this problem?

Most of us stopped using 722 receivers when Hoppers replaced them (in 3/2012).  Your 722 is woefully out of date, not surprised that something you use daily is starting to malfunction.

Yes, I am on the 3rd one within a month. Don't upgrade to the Joey ( pull the post on this forum). Besides the service and upgrade price hike, they're having the same problems with restart and freezing issues.

Have had both Joey 2 & 3 for quite a while, never had issues with restart or freezing. Works great w/Hopper 3, issues might be with older Hoppers & Joey's.
